The commands \singlespacing,\doublespacing and so on are *global*
commands that change the style for the entire document (which is why
they appear in the preamble).

Within the document there are *relative* changes that can be made
within environments. Thus \begin{spacing}{0.5} is half the spacing
used in the global document (I assume half of double is single---but
this is probably not strictly true because of stylistic changes).

The solution has been posted by Krishnan.

Another mailing list hint. Please don't repost the entire
message you are replying to (either at the top or at the bottom).

You can quote the relevant portions either with a '> ' as my mail
program does or by simply indenting it.

Regards,

Kapil.
